The 3.5.6 beta build of OxygenOS is now rolling out to the OnePlus 3 with the November security patch, but for now, it’s not sure when the device will receive Android 7.0 Nougat. The good news is that, according to reports, the handset will be updated by the end of the year.

For now, OnePlus 3 owners will have to settle for OxygenOS 3.5.6 Beta 7, which weighs in at 1.5 GB and doesn’t comes come with many major changes. However, there are a few new features and improvements, such as a new audio tuner, which can be found in Settings > Sound > Audio. In order to extend battery life on the OnePlus 3, users will find the new background app freezing mechanism very helpful, but there are also small tweaks to the UI’s clock and accent color.

The update has brought bug fixes, as well, and gamers will be happy that the black screen issue that occurred when exiting games in horizontal orientation has been solved. The system stability has been improved as well, and launcher related crashes should no longer bother users.

The only way to get this OTA update is to enroll into the beta branch, and once you become a member of the community, you’ll start getting notifications about the availability of a new update. Don’t panic if you don’t receive the update immediately. Just wait a few days, because the update usually rolls out in phases and it takes longer to hit all users around the world.

Unfortunately for fans in the US and Europe, the OnePlus 3 sales have been discontinued in these regions and this has to do with the release of the OnePlus 3T, which is a refresh of the current flagship that comes with a price tag of $439 in the US, which is $40 more than the OnePlus 3. This new model will be available starting November 22 and it will have an upgraded processor, a variant of 128 GB of storage, a larger battery, an improved front camera, and a rear camera with a sapphire lens cover.
